Query Help

Hi,
  Please find the attached file for the table export data. It has id, name and containingregion columns.
containingregion column has id which connects to other location in the same table.

My problem here is  when I give an id I need to get country for that id and continent for that ID in two queries. my problem here is some times the ID might be county record, some times the ID might be state ID..when I give ID I need to get country, state and continent. if the id is country id, then I need to get state as null, country as this record and continent should be the continent of the record.

I need it in three queries, one for state, one for country and one for continent. Please let me know how can I do it.

Thanks

Please post your expected results as a spreadsheet, it's difficult to follow the written explanation.

Name is the country name what you are expecting but I think there should be one more table containing your location and continent information.

Boz one continent can have multiple location and you location which ID in your file should always be unique so based on that you need to make a relation and get the expected result and as Akenathon: said to provide a expected result then it will be easier to understand what you are looking for as when i did a select on each ID I am able to get the result like below:

ID      NAME      REGIONCODE      CONTAININGREGION      STATE_PROVINCE_IND      REGION_TYPE
3975      United States      US      3965      N      CNTRY


Which seems to be a good data.

Better to provide a expected result you are looking for.
